Remembering the Long Civil War  

Apr/09/2015 - Apr/09/2015
Location: Trinity Episcopal Church

This week marks the 150th anniversary of the generally recognized end of the Civil War in 1865.

Natchez National Historical Park invites the public to attend a free lecture, “Remembering ‘the Long Civil War,’ 1861-77” by Jim Wiggins, professor of history at Copiah-Lincoln Community College, at 1:00 p.m., Thursday, April 9, 2015 at Trinity Episcopal Church, 305 South Commerce Street.

At the end of the program, Trinity’s bells will ring out, joining thousands of others across the country and marking the end of the war and the beginning of reconciliation and reconstruction.

Natchez National Historical Park also invites area churches, temples, schools, city halls, public buildings, historic sites, and others to ring bells at 2:15 p.m. [CST] on Thursday for four minutes (each minute symbolic of one year of the war).
